Going through the main gate, the gentle deer always welcome you.

Snow made the silent black and white world.
I saw the subtle reflection of Great Buddha Hall on its approach. Even though I had visited this place
many, many times, I had never found this reflection. What a transient and dim image like mirage!!
This is the entrance to Great Buddha's World.
On the way back, I found crimson Japanese apricot blossoms blanketed with pure snow.
They looked like crimson flowers in white blossoms.
According to the myth, Feb 11th is Birthday of Japan when the first Emperor Jinmu established the Imperial Government about two thousand seven hundred years ago.
